Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke at the Eastern Economic Forum early this morning and accused the West of playing games of deception with sanctions that harm not only themselves but also the poorest nations. He warned that food problems will only exacerbate and “turn into a never-before-seen humanitarian catastrophe.”
The West said that it needed to allow civilian ships into the Ukrainian Black Sea to deliver grain cargo. Putin says that most of that grain went to the wealthiest European nations with only 3 percent dedicated to hunger relief missions. That amounts to two out of 87 ships.
Putin pointed out that the slumping Dollar, Euro and British pound are evidence that these currencies are “untrustworthy” and said that Russia will move “away from the use of these unreliable, compromised currencies.” He said that U.S. allies know this and are stealthily doing the same thing. He said, “even US allies are gradually reducing their savings and payments in dollars, according to statistics… I will note that yesterday Gazprom and its Chinese partners agreed to pay for gas in rubles and yuan in a 50/50 split.”
The Eastern Economic Forum is a consortium of Russian and Asian nations with additional participants from Uzbekistan, Armenia, India, Mongolia, Myanmar and more.
Israel Admits Killing Palestinian Journalist… sort of
Israeli police attacking mourners carrying coffin of Shireen Abu Akleh credit: ap
Israel released the results of its investigation into the killing of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh. She was an American citizen who reported on the conflict in Palestine for Al Jazeera.
Israel was pressured into carrying out this investigation after initially refusing to do so. You may also recall that her funeral was stormed by Israeli forces and created an awful scene.
The evidence was fairly incontrovertible that Israeli forces were responsible for her death and now Israel admits it, albeit sheepishly. The report says that it is not possible to determine who fired “unequivocally” but they finally do admit that “there is a high possibility that Ms. Abu Akleh was accidentally hit by [Israeli] gunfire fired toward suspects identified as armed Palestinian gunmen during an exchange of fire in which life-threatening, widespread and indiscriminate shots were fired toward IDF soldiers.” Yet they still leave room for the possibility that she was killed by Palestinian gunmen.
Videos from the scene do not show an exchange of gunfire. They show her casually walking amongst Palestinians.
Israel says that this matter is now concluded and no one will be punished for her death. Many are outraged about this but the United States is not among them. The U.S. has refused to condemn this act, presumably because there is no war there to pursue.

Over 70,000 people took to the streets to protest in the Czech Republic over the weekend. The protests were named “Czech Republic First” and they took place in Wenceslas Square in Prague.
Protestors called for an end to Russian sanctions, which they all agree are causing energy prices to surge and inflation to rage out of control. They want their government to end NATO involvement and put their country’s needs first.
The media calls this a coalescence of the far-right and the extreme-left. Politicians dismissed the rally as Russian propaganda. Some in this region do support Russia, sure, but the general sentiment was less pro-Russia and more pro-neutrality. Is it really so far out and extreme to ask for neutrality? Politicians and media who don’t want neutrality will tell you that it is. Peace is radical these days.
More protests are planned for later this month if the government does not make radical changes.

Do you snore in your sleep?
Bad news for people who snore: they may have an increased risk of cancer.
This comes from the European Respiratory Society’s recent meeting. Researchers say that snoring is highly linked with sleep apnea and sleep apnea is linked with an increased risk of cancer, a decline in mental processing powers, and an increased risk of blood clots.
Does sleep apnea cause these undesirable things or is sleep apnea associated with other contraindications such as obesity, smoking and diabetes? Scientists say that this data shows that it is sleep apnea itself that is harmful.
One researcher said: “It is known already that patients with obstructive sleep apnea have an increased risk of cancer but it has not been clear whether or not this is due to the OSA itself or to related risk factors for cancer, such as obesity, cardiometabolic disease, and lifestyle factors. Our findings show that oxygen deprivation due to OSA is independently associated with cancer.”
